More details

Earlier Julie had shared about a possible reunion for a fourth movie in an interview with Variety in 2021. "What happened was that we — all three of us — agreed that we couldn’t come up with something good for a fourth one. It’s that simple. We didn’t fight. We’re not on bad terms. Everyone’s happy…It’s so much drama for nothing. We just didn’t come up with a good idea,” she had shared.

Ethan Hawke was most recently seen in the short film directed by Pedro Almodovar also starring Pedro Pascal.
